Exploring immunological mechanisms of graft-versus-host disease and of functional immune tolerance in patients after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
In this project, we build on our previous work of T lymphocyte homeostasis after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). We explore early lymphocyte reconstitution and immunological mechanisms of GVHD versus functional immune tolerance. […]
Multiparameter single-cell profiling of human CD4+FOXP3+ regulatory T-cell populations in homeostatic conditions and during graft-versus-host disease
The perspective to harness the potent immunosuppressive activity of CD4+FOXP3+ regulatory T cells (Treg) for clinical applications has sparked enormous interest in this cell population. Recent studies, however, have shown that the human Treg […]
Epigenetic mechanisms controlling the stability and plasticity of CD4+ T cell subsets
Scientific Background Differentiation of naïve CD4+ T lymphocytes into functionally distinct T helper cell subsets is essential for efficient immune responses against different types of pathogens. Effector T cell lineages selectively produce specific sets […]
Linking genotype, cell function and pathology in inflammatory diseases
The past years have been marked by a leap forward in our understanding of the genetic basis of many diseases. In particular, genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have provided insight into the “genetic architecture” of […]
